In 2009 Freshwater West, one of the wildest beaches in Pembrokeshire, famed for its surf and long, golden beach and high, sheltered sand dunes became a film set for not just one blockbuster but two!! Namely Robin Hood and the new Harry Potter movie - Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows.
Bosherston is located close to Castlemartin military firing range. The range covers an area of 2400 hectares on the South Pembrokeshire coast within the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park. The border of the range is approx 800m away. The Pembrokeshire Coast Path, a National Trail, crosses Range East (during non-firing periods) and inland along 8 km of roads past Range West. When firing is in progress the road diversion through Bosherston provides a longer walk. Vehicle access is available to Stack Rocks and St Govan's Chapel. Both of these are popular with sightseers, climbers and fishermen. The sea cliffs provide some of the best cliff climbing in the UK. Range West and the inland part of Range East are generally not open to the public. However, the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park Authority/Defence Estates organises regular accompanied walks into this area. Many other groups are also catered for through annual safety and conservation briefings. These access opportunities are only available during non-firing periods.

We have had a fantastic, relaxing week in this comfortable little cottage. Although compact it has everything we needed. Beautiful large garden which Monty, in particular, appreciated. Great that it is enclosed and safe for dogs. The area around here is very quiet and picturesque - lots of lovely walks along the coast and around the lily ponds. Broadhaven and Barafundle beaches are excellent. Everywhere - pubs, cafes and beaches are dog friendly. South Pembrokeshire is a hidden gem and we hope to return to explore it further.
Thanks so much Susie for making our stay so enjoyable with lovely flapjacks, homemade and delicious! Also the fresh flowers on the table for our arrival, lovely touch. We've had a great week and feel we've been away much longer. Would recommend Pembroke Castle - well worth the very reasonable price especially with a superb guide included. She made history enjoyable! The cottage is so comfortable and peaceful - I wont want to return to the frantic life at home! Its been a wonderful escape.
Nice restful stay, Stackpole Inn did the best Sunday Lunch (recommend to book). Beautiful beaches and wonderful access to some of them. Bosherston Lily Ponds not to be missed although the resident otter family have decided to become nocturnal - lots of paw prints, sadly no view of the animals. Easy place, no wifi was blilss - its amazing how you adapt to it. Weather mixed, seen the lovely coast which is stunning in any weather. Bird watchers watch out for Choughs on the coast. The Stacks, Green Bridge and St Govans Chapel are breathtaking. St Govans Inn has good service and its dog friendly. Food was good plain fair after a bracing walk. The Point House at Angle is worth the drive over the tracks - follow the signs. Very quirky, dog friendly. All in all the whole area welcomes our canines, which is great as in the Summer cars are NOT the place to leave them!
Another enjoyable stay in a comfortable cottage in a lovely part of the county. We all enjoyed the garden and the humans enjoyed the flapjacks! Many thanks, we hope to return.
Lovely cosy cottage in a peaceful setting. Charlie had a wonderful time playing on the lawn and running on the beautiful, local beaches. Returning home relaxed and a little tanned thanks to the good weather. We will recommend to our friends.
This is a special place and we keep returning! Honeysuckle Lodge is ideal for us with Molly, in its lovely secluded location. Its always a pleasure to return to after a day out. This area of Pembrokeshire is enchanting and never disappoints. We continue to marvel at the beautiful scenery from beach walks, the Lily Ponds and the environs of Stackpole Court. Bird watchers will be kept busy too - such a variety of species here. Many thanks again this year Mrs B. We hope to see you next year!
A very nice cottage, which we used as a base for the Southern part of the Coast Path. We were fortunate with excellent weather and the scenery was spectacular in places. We'll be happy to recommend it to friends.
Lovely week in an area not visited before. Went somewhere different every day. Lovely sunny weather after early mist. Cottage is comfortable and our dog Alfie loved the big lawn. Many gentle walks along beaches, cliffs and especially the Lily Ponds. Did Pembroke town trail and visited Carew Castle and Tenby. Enjoyed the quiet, very different from our town life. We hope to come back again.
Lovely peaceful, location. Accommodation is comfortable and well equipped. Our dog enjoyed the garden. Excellent walks, beaches and view.
Thoroughly enjoyed our stay once again. Cottage comfortable and has everything needed for an enjoyable stay. Fantastic position for dog walking with lovely beaches just minutes away. Weather has been an added bonus with blue skies everyday. All being well the four of us will see you next year!
Had a wonderful stay. Beautiful location with beautiful beaches and walks. Many thanks.
It's so peaceful here, we always enjoy the quiet and the fresh air. A walk around the coastal path from Angle to West Bay is spectacular with its views of the fort and the refinery. We love the beaches around here and have done lots of swimming and body boarding. Don't miss the fresh vegetables and salads from the Stackpole walled garden. P.s thank-you for the lovely flowers and short bread as usual!
Lovely cosy cottage in a peaceful setting (except from the noise from the range on occasion). Charlie had a wonderful time playing on the lawn and running on the beautiful local beaches. Returning home relaxed and a little tanned thanks to the good weather. We will recommend to our friends.
We have really enjoyed our week; Meals at St Governs Inn, The Boathouse tea room, Bosherston cafe, Carew Inn Lawrenny tea room, Stackpole Inn and Angle Cafe. Walks in and around St Davids, Bosherston Lily Ponds, Mencap gardens, Lawrenny Woods, Angle Bay and also Tenby. Visits to Pembroke Castle, Carew Castle and Mill and Upton Castle Gardens along with a bit of shopping in Pembroke. So much to do and such a lovely stay. Thank you!
We have enjoyed our week- the lodge is nice and cosy like a home from home. The furthest we have travelled is to Tenby. I have always wanted to visit Caldey Island, which we did. The beaches are lovely & we enjoyed the coastal paths. Pembroke is a nice little town. St Governs Inn in Bosherston has lovely home cooked food which we enjoyed. A good week, a few showers, but lots of sunshine. Pembrokeshire is truly beautiful!
We've escaped London & managed to completely switch of this week, lots of swimming, body boarding & a lovely comfy cottage to return to. We recommend walking all the way from the cottage to Broadhaven beach (turn right from gate, walk along lane past old quarry, right at the end onto road through Bosherston, then left through the lily ponds and down to the beach- takes approx one hour). We also enjoyed shopping at the Mencap gardens- delicious fresh vegetables, cheaply priced. We had a good meal at the Stackpole Inn (although quite expensive) and delicious 'Pembrokeshire Promise' ice cream from the Boathouse at Barafundle. Glorious weather every day, only wish we could stay longer. Thank you very much! p.s The home made cakes were lovely and much appreciated.
We had a lovely stay and a sunny week. We visited lots of lovely local places, castles and beaches and took lots of walks too.
We have just finished a glorious dry and warm week at Honeysuckle Lodge. We think this is our 7th year here. As ever we enjoyed a warm welcome from Susie and Rufus the dog. A cliff top walk near Stack Rocks was well worth it, with sightings of oyster catchers, a cormorant, guillemots and various gulls. Needless to say, we have enjoyed Broadhaven beach, where it has been warm enough to brave the water without wetsuits. The cream teas at Ye Olde Worlde cafe are still the best in the area! A disappointment was mackeral fishing from Tenby- annoyingly the took our money, knowing full well they hadn't has a bite in weeks.Be warned! Please also visit the Mencap walled gardens, they sell a great selection of home grown veg that are delicious and good value. It is nice to support the project.
It was lovely to be back and enjoy the comforts of Honeysuckle Lodge- sadly without the ash tree where we always sat to have out evening glass of wine. Aldine came with us this time and also fell in love with Pembrokeshire. Like me, she thought Lawrenny was a special place, quite remote but a must- although the road was a bit hair-raising! Bess loved it all too- we will all come again!
We have very much enjoyed our stay in Honeysuckle Lodge. It is very comfortable and well equipped. The weather has been wonderful, we've had some lovely walks along the coastal path. Barafundle is our favourite beach. We love this this part of Pembrokeshire and hope to return. Thank You!
Another beautiful Pembrokeshire week. After a breezy but lovely start, summer came around in force. The flowers were more stunning than ever, cliffs blue with Squill and sea birds gradually returned as the week went on. We so look forward to coming back! Thank you for yet another perfect week.
Have thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Honeysuckle Lodge. Fabulous location for the best beaches in Pembrokeshire! Thanks for the warm welcome!! The weather has been very kind, had a great wildlife encounter with a very friendly heron at Bosherston Lily Ponds. Was inspected several times by the black & white cat who is very friendly. This return to the area has enjoyed memories of childhood holidays in the past.
We have really enjoyed our stay in this cosy little cottage. We have found the welcome to be warm and the cottage comfortable and in a great location- near our favourite beaches. We have been so lucky with a week of perfect weather and can only hope for such luck when we return to your lovely cottage in the summer!!
Relatively uncharted territory for us- this part of Pembrokeshire has been a delight. The cottage has provided a wonderfully tranquil base (other than the occasional bang from the firing range). We were welcomed by lovely home made cakes which were much appreciated. Thank you Mrs Bulkeley for providing this comfortable & homely retreat in such a perfect location. You were also very helpful when we requested the odd piece of info. Molly,our dog, has felt truly at home!
Lovely cottage in a lovely spot. We all enjoyed it, even with the changeable weather!We would like to return sometime. Thank you.
If you are looking for a haven of peace and tranquility as a base for your holiday, well look no further, Honeysuckle Lodge is perfect.
The cosiest cottage we have ever stayed in, with the best welcome and facilities. Zoe (aged 6) loved her bedroom, the garden and the cats!
A warm welcome to a cottage which is cosy, clean and superbly equipped - the scent of honeysuckle making it even more inviting.
